Barcelona Tourist Guide

Tourism in Barcelona:

Sagrada Familia

This modernist wonder by Antoni Gaudí is the most popular tourist attraction in Spain. The construction of this building is funded by churchgoers and devotees, and through ticket revenue from visitors. Once he started the project, it quickly become, Gaudí's lifetime ambition. At the time of his death in 1926, only one of the towers had been completed. The continuation of Gaudi's project has become an unmistakable symbol of Barcelona, not just because of its spectacular size, but because it also reveals the spirit of a city which always been committed to building its future. Walk from here up the Avinguda Gaudi, a pedestrian boulevard which leads to the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, another of Barcelona's modernista buildings.

Parc Guell

PARK GÜELL -a World Heritage Site- is named after Gaudí's great patron, Count Eusebi Güell. Although initially planned as a residential area in the English style of a garden city, this initiative was unsuccessful and only one showhouse was built, which later become Gaudí's home and today houses the museum devoted to the architect. Finally, Güell donated the park to the Municipal Council in 1923 and since then it has belonged to the municipality and been a unique public park that enjoys a prime location. Nowhere else so successfully integrates Gaudi's work into nature; his main source of inspiration.
